Too bad, it took the effort of Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres, Paul O'Brien and David Foster to promote this talented young girl.
She was not even given attention by ABS-CBN from her own country, simply because she's not that pretty. She did not even won the first price in their coveted singing contest (she was only third)
It's the same case as Arnel Pineda who is now the lead vocal singer of JOURNEY.
He used to be simple a club singer. Nobody cares for them because they don't have that great looks.
Charice is a gift from heaven. She shoots to fame singing songs of other people, but she is limited to only being an American Idol.
She needs a good recording studio and a sponsor to groom her. She needs her own album, songs she calls her own, and a style she claim hers.
Otherwise, she will just be another american idol wasted when the limelight switches off on her.
Jetlagged and sleepless after flying in from the United States, Filipino singing sensation Charice Pempengco visited the main office of the Philippine Daily Inquirer in Makati City Tuesday and gladly talked about her ongoing adventure with worldwide fame.
She’s staying in Manila for only two days. On Thursday, she flies to Italy to appear as a special guest in a TV talent show—on the request of young viewers themselves.
“I’m singing duets with Italian superstars,” the petite Charice, dressed in jeans splattered with bright colors and matched by high-cut sneakers, said in an endearing mix of Filipino and English.
The breaks seem to come from the most unexpected places for Charice, who turns 17 on May 10. Just a week ago, she finished shooting for her first Hollywood movie, “Alvin and the Chipmunks Part 2: The Squeakquel.”
Her role in the animation film—as a contestant in a high school musical contest—was specially created after she passed the audition.
And just three days ago, she sang in a star-studded tribute for the legendary boxing champion Muhammad Ali.
“They said it was historic because lately, it was only I who had managed to make him smile,” she said.
Charice recalled that before her performance, she was thinking about what could possibly catch the attention of “The Greatest,” who’s now afflicted with Parkinson’s Syndrome.
She proceeded to sing the first of her three numbers, Beyonce’s “Listen.” On her second song, Michael Jackson’s “Billy Jean,” she did the famous “Ali Shuffle.”
The night’s honoree reportedly smiled—something he rarely does nowadays.
When she followed it up with Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive,” Ali was teary-eyed.
“His wife was also crying,” said Charice. “I approached them and stood on the table. Ali embraced me, and kissed me!”
